Chocolate Chip Blondies

Happy New Year from No Butter Baking! 

To have a great kick start of 2015, I wanted to share with you a No Butter Baking Chocolate Chip Blondies recipe! I will admit... my sister makes THE BEST blondies in the world; however, she is a baker who does not change the recipe. Meaning...that there's butter in it... Although I don't mind eating butter in small consumption, I wanted to explore if it was possible to make something similar with my sister's delicious blondies but with a No Butter Baking twist. I'm not gonna lie, after trying and trying different batches, I am happy to say that I discovered the perfect recipe! I hope you enjoy! 

Chocolate Chip Blondies 
Servings: 16 bars

  • 8 Tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar (I used the 365 organic one - this seems to work well when I bake blondies!) 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 teaspoon brandy 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Either coat a brownie pan (about 8 inch pan) with oil or cover it with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir in the vegetable oil and brown sugar until the mixture is smooth. 
  • Stir in the egg, followed by vanilla, brandy, and salt. 
  • Add the flour in the wet mixture in two increments. 
  • Lastly, fold the chocolate chips in the batter. 
  • Once you evenly poured the batter in the pan, bake for about 20-30 minutes or until you successfully complete "the toothpick method" (when you insert a toothpick and if there's not batter stuck on the toothpick, it means you're done!) 
  • Cool them on a cooling rack, and you are done! 

What I really like about this recipe is that it still maintains that dense characteristics of blondies. I will let you know that sometimes the top portion of the blondies get a little flakey. I would highly advise you to wait until it's fully cooled. Sometimes, waiting overnight for the blondies to completely cool is advised! 

In 2015, I am hoping that I can continue to post more recipes from 2014 and also new recipes baked in 2015! Thank you everyone for your continuous support and especially for those who encouraged me to create this blog :) 

Wishing you all the happiness, joy, and delicious food in 2015! 
With that being said, from my kitchen to yours, Happy Baking!
